Video

Saturday, May 12, 2012

I have tried out my work out video, and can definitely say it was a good idea not to get P90X. This one is kicking my tail, and I can only do the cardio portion. When I bought this, I didn't realize you have to switch between the cardio and strength training on the same dvd. That's hard to do when your dvd remote is missing... emoticon The first time I tried it last week, I was sore for 4 days afterward (I wasn't even that sore after zumba). I worked up the nerve to try again last night, and so far so good...

  


A challenge to myself

Saturday, April 28, 2012

Well I did it, and it felt a little naughty. I felt guilty spending so much on something for myself but I thought 'why not, aren't I worth it.' So it should be here by Monday...my new Power 90 workout dvd set, courtesy of Ebay (I love Ebay).

So here it is....I'm going to give myself 90 days to see what I can do. I'm going to take it one day at a time. I'm going to keep telling myself "I've got 45 min a day, I can get through it" and take it one day at a time. I figure as long as I tell myself it's only one day and start over the next, it won't seem so daunting. I will be sure to post how it goes, and if I can ever figure out how to post pics on here from a smartphone I will post pics from before and after.

  


Remains the Same

Thursday, April 05, 2012

I'm beginning to sound like a broken record. I still find myself motivated while I am sitting here looking at the Sparkpeople website, but when I get home and can act upon that motivation....it's gone. It always seems to be something to do or catch up on...or I'm just plain wore out (mentally and physically). So I do nothing...

Update, the clomid did not work. It had made this month so screwy that I may see if my dr will switch my medication to Femara. I felt like I was the butt of a very bad April fool's joke all weekend. But on the upside, I took a 2 mile walk on Monday, which wasn't too bad. I need to take more of those.


*****UPDATE*****

I spoke with my ob/gyn's nurse today (4/19), and apparently the meds did work (who knew) and she is going to call in another prescription with refills for the same dosage to my pharmacy. I was surprised to say the least, but you never know. I'm sorta happy about it...it tells me that my body is capable of acting normally, so we'll see how it goes from here.

  Thank you for the comment. I'm going to start over by just tracking my exercise and water intake every day, then go from there and just take it one day at a time. I may try the diabetes challenge after I get the hang of keeping track of my exercise and water.

I hope things work out for you. Take very small steps to keep your motivation up. Change ONE single thing. Start with adding more water to your days. Focus on doing that for an entire week. I started with Spark on the Diabetes challenge. It is an 8-week challenge and it is really great. It takes you through small changes over the course of 8 weeks. I found it VERY helpful at focusing me on a few things instead of everything. Consider trying it. It worked for me and I lost 20 pounds in those 8 weeks.

Good luck.

Today is one of those days....when you don't know which way you're turning or in what direction you're being pushed in. I have been re-evaluating a lot of things in my life recently, and it has apparently made me a bit maudlin (sorry).

I've been feeling a lot of self-pity lately. I can't help it for some reason. It's like no matter what I just keep slipping into this "woe is me" mentality. I've let my progress slip and I'm not proud of it, but it is what it is. I just have to pick myself back up and try again. I will get motivated to get back on the horse and and then run in the opposite direction when i get to the riding block, which leads to more self-pity, etc, etc.

This month was also the first month in my Clomid treatment, and I'm thinking it did not go well. I will know more around the first of April. I'm not looking forward to going up a dose (hot flashes are the devil) but if that's what it takes so be it.

On a sadder note, we've been battling parvo with our 3 month old puppies this past weekend. I can tell you from experience it is a swift battle if not caught early. One of them is eating a little now after 2 days of only pedialyte and antibiotics, 3 are MIA (they were outside puppies), and one (he was such a sweet baby) has passed away. And I just found out about the last one with 3 hrs left out of a 12 hr shift....sigh emoticon
